The "deleted verses":

As I went walking I saw a sign there
And on the sign it said "No Trespassing."
But on the other side it didn't say nothing,
That side was made for you and me.

In the shadow of the steeple I saw my people,
By the relief office I seen my people;
As they stood there hungry, I stood there asking
Is this land made for you and me?

Nobody living can ever stop me,
As I go walking that freedom highway;
Nobody living can ever make me turn back
This land was made for you and me.

Too political for my taste - I like to ensure that art never addresses anything that may confront/challenge my perceptions of reality.

I tend to agree with that. Traditionally, the Dead would just play a song to let the people know what they were feeling. In Carson 1990 the encored with The Last Time. The band didn't need to tell the idiot heads that trashed the town that they weren't coming back. The song selection said it all. I think in this case playing Liberty would have done the job just as nicely.
